An Unusual Case of Heartburn and Esophageal Stenosis
AbstractThe cost-effectiveness of screening and surveillance for Barrett ’s esophagus continues to evolve as the incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma increases, biomarkers enhance the identification of individuals at highest risk for developing cancer, and endoscopic eradication of Barrett’s esophagus improves.

Currently, endoscopic eradication therapy for Barrett’s esophagus and high-grade dysplasia is a cost-effective intervention, w...
In this report, the Rome IV criteria for esophageal DGBI, the updated algorithms for esophageal symptoms, and the multidimensional clinical profile (MDCP) are reviewed. Summary The esophageal DGBI comprise functional esophageal chest pain, functional heartburn, globus, functional dysphagia, and the newly introduced reflux hypersensitivity. They are characterized by the presence of chronic symptoms attributed to the esophagus without evidence of esophageal structural, inflammatory, or motility abnormalities. Also, Rome IV suggests for the first time the possibility that functional heartburn or reflux hypersensitivity mig...

Conclusions: The pathogenesis of P-CAB-resistant NERD was elucidated in 51% of patients. Symptoms in all patients SI-positive for liquid reflux were related to weakly acidic reflux, and symptoms related to acid reflux may be ruled out by the administration of P-CAB.Digestion 2018;98:194 –200

Conclusions: Vegetable proteins are associated with a lower number of refluxes, particularly acid refluxes, and with a reduced number of symptoms during the first postprandial hour. This is a pilot study and future investigations are warranted to confirm these results. PMID: 29849599 [PubMed]
